So, I went shopping for a few things at Whole Foods last night and as I was scanning the pre-made fish and chickens I spotted Gluten free chicken nuggets!!! I was so excited, I called everyone I know. Granted they are dinosaur shapes and made for kids, (I am 27) and I haven't tried them yet, but I left the store with a big smile on my face. :D They said "Gluten Free" really big on the package. I also checked the ingredients and they look good to me. So, that is what I am having for dinner tonight. Will let you guys know how they are tomorrow!!!

Who makes them? I was just at whole foods on Tuesday and couldn't find any chicken nuggets at all :(

That would be WellshireKids -- ours come in a plastic ziploc-top "bag" so maybe you are looking for the wrong kind of package? My son thinks they are too spicy, but otherwise they are wonderful :)

My husband (who's not celiac) likes them even more than I do! :-)

I can't get them to order them at my local Whole Foods, but I've tried...

Wellshire Farms is not currently taking internet orders either! So I have pretty much given up on finding them right now. I figure when I go on vacation maybe I'll find them...Glad to know that at least some people have been able to find them and that they like them.

God bless,

Mariann

So, I looked and you guys are right, they are made by Wellshire Farms. Honestly, I tried them last night and did not think they tasted good at all. They weren't crunchy (I made them in the oven as directed) and they didn't really taste like chicken. So, needless to say, I was a little disappointed after getting so excited about finding them. If anyone has any other suggestions on how to cook them please let me know!

The crunchiness issue is pretty common - even with non-gluten-free stuff. There are a couple things to do:

1. Let them thaw a bit before they go in the oven.

2. Turn the oven on higher than the directions.

3. Bake them a bit longer than they call for - test by color (just avoid burnt).

But I can see the taste not being everyone's thing. I hear rice flour is good for making your own from scratch.

    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.
